SCCM distribution issues for Design Academy on win7x64

Hi

I have created Adminimage for most of the products on a server. SCCM installs them through network, with the setup.exe and the required command lines. Advertisement is per machine and scheduled. Evrything seems to work. But I have the following issues.

Execpt Autocad, all other programs add desktop shortcuts(ie Inventor), In our organisation that is prohibited, I can probably remove them by editing the .mst files. But I was wondering if there is a way to do it in .ini? The same goes for Design Review and Inventor Fusion.

Design Review shortcuts end up like:

"C:\Windows\SysWOW64\config\systemprofile\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Autodesk\Autodesk Design Review 2012.lnk"

"C:\Windows\SysWOW64\config\systemprofile\Desktop\Autodesk Design Review 2012.lnk"

When i run msi+mst in system account with themsiexec and not using ALLUSERS property the shortcuts are ok ie

"C:\Users\Public\Desktop\Autodesk Design Review 2012.lnk"

Anyway to fix this in .ini?

Thanks for the reply. I had read the article, but I am using Autocad Adminimage to distribute Design Review and did try the EXE_PARAM=. Maybe I should split the installation since the shortcuts also go to the wrong directory and are not available to users. Is msi+mst is enough or should i also include the gpo.mst for Design Review?

How do i prevent desktop shortcuts for Inventor, Civil3d, Autocad Mechanical and all others?

I haven't tested these on the suite

 

passing ADSK_DESKTOPSHORTCUT_1=0 to msi should work for all the products.

 

gpo.mst is required only for gpo deployment
